President Trump's confirmation that he and first lady Melania Trump have been diagnosed positive for COVID-19 has unleashed a new round of Trump Derangement Syndrome symptoms.
Former Barack Obama staffer and Hillary Clinton national spokeswoman Zara Rahim wrote on Twitter, "I hope he dies."
*They want you dead but will settle for your submission*
...they are not exaggerating.
